Two of our MA students, Mao Lei and Andre Dubois, will be presenting at the Sociology & Anthropology Graduate Students Association Conference. Although their research is quite different, both students will be presenting at the Media and Material Culture panel. Mao will be presenting a paper titled Another Stardom: Reconstructing the Early Gay Porn Industry through a Biographical Documentary. Andre will be presenting on sports films. His paper is titled The Intersection and Contestation of Space & Identity in Sports Cinema. The SAGSA conference is happening on March 14th and 15th.
